    Question Butt wiggle

    Ok never heard of this, but my mom and I were watching one of my guinea pigs(I have had them for like 3 days) and she started shifting from one foot to the other so that her butt was moving back and forth and I think she was weeking. So I was wondering If somebody could tell me if this means she is happy or scared?

    Rumblestrutting. Dominance issue, or she's in heat.

    Are they both female?

    Ya she was near the food bowl when she did it this time, and last time she was standing near one of the tubes. I can't wait to see them popcorn.

    My older boy does this all the time to his younger counterpart. From what I've learned it's totally ok as long as the behavior doesn't turn violent.

    I love a good rumblestrut. Sometimes my Cupcake used to do it with nothing around. She may have been giving her hay a what-for.
